Hi Aaron, I've been also working on Openstack plugin for VCL and finished the POC test on Openstack Essex with Ubuntu 12.04 x64 server. The reservations works but there are still some issues on capturing (or snapshot) images in Openstack Essex. If you can create jira issue, I could post my initial work in details and share some configuration tips with others. Thank you.

Hi Young, At the moment we've tested our module with Amazon EC2 and OpenStack's Cactus release. Provisioning works, though there's still a few issues that need resolving. We're also still deciding the best approach to take with image capture, especially for Windows images. We definitely want to get everyone's thoughts on this once it's open sourced. It'll be great to get a chance to talk with you at the conference. Cameron On Thu, Apr 12, 2012 at 9:55 AM, Young h Oh <o...@us.ibm.com> wrote: Hi Cameron, Sounds great. Our team are also interested in implementing the OpenStack Provisioning module to VCL at IBM tivioli. The stage here is also in the proof of concept and I've tried to build up the test environment now. But before I go further, I'd like to know whether you already implemented the openstack provisioning module or not. I'd like to avoid any duplicating efforts on the same work. If you already finished, please let me know. Also, I'll join the ICA CON 2012 and I'm looking forward to your presentation. We can discuss more details about your work after it. Thank you.
